Little Lizard's Lightning Lunch

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Barbara Reed-Polatty

Taken with my Sony Cybershot DSC-HX9V in the Waimea Valley on Oahu's North Shore. Hiking the trails and my friend spotted movement in this bright green plant - we spotted this little lizard (hard to do as he/she was the same color as the leaves and no bigger than a grasshopper). I managed to zoom in and capture him/her right as he/she captured an insect for lunch! The lizard was gone by the time I looked up from the camera. Moved so fast, I doubted we had even seen anything. Happy to have caught just this one frame.

Location: Waimea Valley, Oahu, HI
